CROOKSTON, MN (April 20, 2006) – See the world by sharing your world and hosting an international student from the University of Minnesota, Crookston (UMC) from May 6-June 11, 2006.

UMC is seeking families interested in being a part of our International Student Program and outreach efforts for this short-term opportunity. We currently need housing, room and board, for two UMC students from Korea anxious to experience American family life by living, interacting and contributing to your household. Both 20-something men, Su Bok Kim and Woo Jung Na, are outgoing individuals eager to interact with a host family. Accounting majors at UMC, both have been in Crookston for one semester and are electrical engineering students in their home country. They are interested in sharing their math knowledge with high school students and being a “part of the family” during their stay.

This is an opportunity to partner with these students, gain a broader vision of our world and extend a hand of friendship to the valued visitors who make UMC and Crookston a world-class destination. To learn more or sign up to be a host, contact International Student Program coordinator Rae French at 218-281-8339 (
